If your veterinary surgeon refers you to our Orthopaedics Service, you can rely on the veterinary expertise, sophisticated facilities and first class nursing at DWR to ensure that your pet receives the best possible level of care.

We specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. Cats and dogs are referred to us for a wide range of conditions including hip dysplasia, cranial cruciate ligament disease, osteoarthritis and limb deformities.

Our Orthopaedic Surgeons repair an extensive variety of injuries and disorders and we have a wealth of clinical expertise and experience. The treatments available range from minimally invasive arthroscopic and fluoroscopic guided (key-hole) procedures to total hip and elbow replacement.

DWR is a multi-disciplinary centre and our service benefits greatly from an integrated approach to cases involving Specialists from related disciplines as appropriate. We are also supported by our in-house Physiotherapy Team whose land- and water-based therapies can enhance the rehabilitation of our patients significantly.

Orthopaedics is a field which is developing rapidly. In recent years state of the art techniques, such as joint replacement, have become routine procedures undertaken regularly by our team. We are constantly investigating new approaches and seeking improved therapies for our patients.
